We flashed big smiles and pretended we knew what we are doing, bingo! straight thorough security - which this time was pretty thorough - and it should be considering it was bombed in 2008.

The interior is whitewashed and airy, and full of colonial memorials, again, reminiscent of a number of churches in the UK. After a brief pause to drink fresh coconut we headed to Horniman Circle, a ring of buildings, one of which is the Town Hall, set around a botanical garden which was hosting an ...
